I was following your other post, about your car just cutting out. It says that you tried to turn it over, but to no avail. And when you ask about needing a new starter or not, I'm led to believe that the starter / engine won't even turn. Am I wrong?
If that's the case, all this talk about the timing belts is for naught.
The car just cutting out like that is symptomatic of a couple of things -
1. The fusable link, which it sounds like you already checked.
2. There's also a fuse for ENG in the fuse panel. I think it's a blue 15 amp fuse. Check that one.
3. Your alternator went out, and drained your battery, that's why it stopped. You can't turn it over because it's dead. Have you tried jumping it, or charging your battery?
If the car is turning over, than you can disregard the above. If it isn't, I hope this gives you some helpful leads. Let me know how it turns out!

My guess is if it happened while driving it was the timing belts.
Dude,read my reply in your other post.And the others too.Just look at the front of your motor for the plastic covers and then locate the rubber covers I told you about.Not a bad idea to lift the distributor cap but at this point I don't want to confuse you more.Good luck which ever way you chose.
